thin sliced bacon is the devil.

If you can find your own pork bellies, you can make your own uncured bacon. Slice it as thick as you want, too.

and if you are too lazy to smoke it, fried pork belly is heavenly, too.

I would fist fight a team of highly trained, ninja polar bears for some bacon.


The bacon sold in supermarkets now is injected with saline and preservatives which is the opposite of bacon, Bacon as you say is cured to extract moisture and prolong the shelf life.

Smoking is a secondary process to further extend shelf life and real bacon can be kept for months unrefigerated.

I often take a pork belly and pop it into a plastic container with salt and demarara sugar for about 3 days to make a kind of green bacon which is worlds apart from anything you can buy from anywhere other than an artisan butcher for an absolute fortune.

It can't go off because it gets used so quickly!

vegetarians answering a question about temptation replied commenting on the smell of bacon.



there is vegetarian bacon that tastes enough like the real thing you would not know the difference, it also smells the same because the smell and taste are from smoke flavoring and spice not the poor dead animal flesh.

Well, since I get my bacon, whole pig actually, from a local farmer, I don't worry. I know how they are raised.

And our family never believed the BS when the government was saying it was bad. Same with eggs.

So, for us, yeah, it has always been cool, no matter what the public believed.

It has nothing to do with the government saying anything, it is all fat, calories, salt and nitrates.

Vegatarianism aside I would say that veggie bacon does not(or did not) taste like bacon.

I would also be more worried about the chemicals and proccess that would go into the making of it than the fat and salt in bacon(from pigs)

Maybe you should take a close look at what goes into an animal and any substitute, if you had any interest.

I do have an interest and do not wish to discuss vegatarianism on this thread as that is not the OP.

I was a vegatarian for many years and would be happy to discuss the pro's and con's on a seperate thread if you would like to start the ball rolling and pm me with the thread or post it here for those who wish to join in.

You already did discuss it and vegetarian Bacon is still called bacon.

Facon isn't bacon in the same sense that tofurky isn't turkey. Sorry to argue semantics, but it is what it is (or rather, what it isn't) Are you really going to drag down/derail the whole thread because you dislike the carnivore culinary love in it? Meat eaters ruffling feathers in a veg thread would be equally uncool.

No Zazz. Chuck is the reason I have a beard. I am the reason he eats bacon.

I see your post as the "dragger downer" not mine. This thread is about why everyone is so sheep like and you all seem to feel proud.

Proud? Who said anything about any kind of pride here? it's food, for crying out loud. People who like a particular food more than others call it a favorite or preference. We like our preferred grub, so what? If that means bacon, then sing the praises if you like. Not any different than a hardcore chocolate lover is o.O

It is a living, feeling creature abused and tortured for your taste buds.

Now, you just said this up thread:

You are definitely derailing. My taste buds thank the animals, and frankly don't care about what you think about it. Can the thinly veiled moral superiority derailing stop yet?

Lamb bacon is good but duck bacon is even better.

After the pig the duck is possibly the most delicious and versatile animal ever invented.
